Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has agreed to extend his contract with the Bundesliga giants for a further two years, according to BBC Sport.

The highly-rated head coach is widely respected for the work he has done with the club, having helped them through a difficult period and turning them into one of Europe’s top clubs again, with two Bundesliga title wins in a row and an appearance in last season’s Champions League final.

His side are also renowned for their attractive and attack-minded football, with the likes of Mario Goetze, Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus developing into some of the best players in the world under his guidance.

Klopp is said to have attracted interest from big clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester City during the summer as they searched for new managers, though he claims he turned them down to remain with Dortmund.

Last season’s Bundesliga and Champions League runners-up have started this season in fine form as well, and look set to be Bayern Munich’s main contenders for the German league title, as they currently sit one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side in the table.

On Klopp’s new deal, the club’s general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said: “Since you should never separate that which belongs together, we’ve extended the contract of our head coach and his team once again.”

Klopp added: “We’re all still just a little bit in love with this club and the way things are progressing here.”
